When you put System Files and Applications in the exclusion list, it is not clear what specific files and folders are being concerned.

Is it just the /Applications and /System folders?

Are /private or /opt also excluded? How about /Library?


According to Apple

OS X system files include the System folder and the apps that come with your Mac, such as Safari, Mail, Messages, iTunes, Dashboard, and others.

I'd also like to see a complete list. Based on my own testing (on 10.11.1) I can confirm that /opt is not included and that not everything in /Applications is excluded.
